The photo above showing a night rainbow (nachregenbogen in German) was taken from Hammelburg, Germany on the night of April 26, 2005. Driving through the fog on this spring evening, my headlight beams created this high arching fogbow. Fogbows are more feebly colored than their Sun illuminated counterparts (rainbows) and usually appear whitish to the unaided eye. See also the Earth Science Picture of the Day for March 11, 2005.
